Sweet Caroline's Feminine Whimsy

Writing for another blog (one with deadlines and a boss) often means that mine gets a little neglected. But I wanted to give you a glimpse of Caroline's  house tour I did for Apartment Therapy. My friend Stefan of Architect Design fame put me in touch with her, and I'm so glad he did. Thanks Stefan! If you missed his house tour (another awesome and tiny studio) you can check it out here.

Caroline is one of the most exuberant people I've met, and she was so fun to work with! As soon as I stepped foot in her Columbia Heights studio I knew it was going to be a great afternoon--she and her home just have an upbeat vibe. The weather was perfect, the light was just starting to soften while it was getting ready to set, and Caroline couldn't have been cuter. Her outfit totally matched her decor! Isn't she beautiful? I love taking portraits of people in their homes...

Besides being a great decorator, she's a professional opera singer and musician. We are hoping that she will also make a great piano teacher for Maddy once we buy a piano (tippity top of our dream list). I think Maddy would absolutely love her...I mean she's a girl who loves pink and has a massive rainbow of a shoe collection, both of which I'm pretty sure are on the tippity top Maddy's dream list :)

If you haven't checked out the full tour, here's the link. It's one of my most popular tours to date, and one of my personal favorites. A well done studio apartment is so impressive! Leaving Caroline's home, I wondered if it really was necessary to have so many rooms (and I often think of my home as small!) Rich, what do you think of moving the whole family into 475 sq ft? :)
I'm always on the look out for wonderful homes to feature on Apartment Therapy, so please let me know if you're interested!


  1. Ooooh..! I'll have to check it out.

    Love the new look of the blog, too, Leah! The pout on the right-hand side corner is *especially* endearing! :)

    So glad to hear all has been well in your life, you! Busy and full and just filled to the brim with love and creativity..! Wouldn't want to live any other way.

    much love,

  2. Omg...a rainbow of heels! I love it, although I only have 2 pairs, black and patent leather!

    maria...i agree the pout is soooo cute!
